High School football: Poplarville at St. Stanislaus
If the 82-80 game back in 2012 is any indication as to what can happen when St. Stanislaus and Poplarville get together on the gridiron then we were in for quite a show tonight in Bay St. Louis.
The 4A rivals have accounted for the last three state championship appearances from the south, but there’s only room for one of these schools in the third round.
Undefeated Poplarville rolled into the home of the Rock-A-Chaws with some unfinished business. St. Stanislaus still trying to prove the doubters wrong.
Hornets do what they do, pulling away to punch their ticket to the third round with a 42-31 win over St. Stanislaus.
Elsewhere in Class 4A, East Central is moving on as well, staying undefeated in the process, taking down West Lauderdale at home by the final score of 52-6.
